1 Kind of a bummer about LG, but not really a surprise.  They've been making phones that just aren't quite good enough--or are just strange enough--to not sell well for at least 5 years or so now.
Hmm, has anyone heard from HTC lately?
PSF:  In the comments, people suggest that it "may take long enough to be effective" that there may be a bigger drop in performance than Phoronix' benchmark testing can determine.  That sounds a little Intel shilly to me, but we'll see.

2 Generally with that kind of hardware micro-optimisation, a "long time" is tens of microseconds.

3 Yeah.  Given the clock speeds of modern processors, and what the specific optimization is, the idea that it might take minutes to take effect seems a bit weird.

4 I like phoronix, but for most articles, you can just pretend that every comment is some variant of "First!" or "Ur mom, fagit!" except with worse punctuation and spelling.
(I know there is at least one AMD dev, and one FreeBSD dev who sometimes post in the comments, but they're generally drowned out by the 14-year-olds)

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
